Dear everyone who knows both Brisbane and Melbourne: what are the Brisbane equivalents of suburbs like Preston, Thornbury, Coburg, Northcote? Kind regards, potential Melbourne-living person.
I spend all day every day comparing Melbourne to Brisbane less as judgement more as orientation. South bank is still where the art gallery is, there are trains. There are lots of differences (no hills, straight roads, bad buses).
I’ve been to Northcote probably three times but it feels very much like living as far out as Chermside, with the atmosphere of (a very flat) Paddington. Coburg is my second favourite suburb because there are always old men in hats drinking coffee in the morning, speaking languages I don’t know and it feels very romantic.
Fitzroy North/Carlton North feels like the New Farm of Victoria, without the river. I’m basing that on people I see as I go about my hideously pretentious life, and the park situation.

My dear friends and I have made this thing. Please let me know what you think?
My friends made this and I know the words to most of these songs so you should listen to them.
Stop What You Are Doing
Go the The End in West End and buy a BlackstarXThe End Mocha Stout and feel happiness. FEEL IT.
Bros and I went to see Snakeface play underneath a house in Tarragindi. I regretted not wearing earplugs but it was the most fun. This kid is probably their biggest fan, he knows all of the words, sang at one point, has mad dance skills. I took sneaky video and hoped I didn’t look too creepy. Then took Rob out for birthday ice cream. Also, we had Kuan Yin. Hooray!
This looked so familiar, then I worked out where it was and why.
